Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlia + Zig Clean Color Watercolor

Hey folks!

My name is Cynde Whitlow. I'm from The Pink Envelope and this is my first official Guest Design post for the Kennedy Grace Creations Blog and I'm so excited to be here!

Sooo...to kick off my first card, I thought I would use the Kennedy Grace Creations July Mood Board for a lil bit of inspiration.


I started by stamping the Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlia on Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color in the image. I usually will pick a light and dark in the same color, but this time, I decided to just use one color for each so I was super duper careful to keep the darkest of the color where the deepest shadows would be.


I used a ruler and created a frame around (ish) the bouquet with a Copic Multiliner. You could totally use a rectangle die and trace around it, but I decided to use the width of my ruler and kind of eyeball it.

Then, I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker in Gray and scribbled it on to my craft mat so I could use a water brush to create a shadow just inside the frame.


I trimmed down the panel with a My Favorite Things Die-Namics Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle Die. I also used a My Favorite Things Burlap Background Stamp and did some tone on tone stamping on my card base.

To finish off my my card, I used a healthy dose of Clear Wink of Stella on the highlights of the flowers and added some super fab Clear Sequins from the Vintage Tea Cup and At The Beach Sequins Mixes by Kennedy Grace Creations.

That's it! Easy peasy.

Thank so much for stopping by to see me and I really hope you enjoyed my card today!

Until next time!

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
